CHELSEA v Manchester United: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: 7th February 2016 Kick-off: 16:00 GMT Today’s late game brings Manchester United to Stamford Bridge. Not their favoured ground with only one win from the last 13 visits but at least they come off the back of a convincing win against Stoke. Chelsea, 13th in the table at the start of [...]

Watford v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Vicarage Road Date: Wednesday, 3 February Kick-off: 19:45 GMT Tonight’s game sees us travel to Watford, where Hiddink’s second spell in charge started with a draw. Chelsea are unbeaten since then and we looked good in our 5-1 win at the weekend, albeit against MK Dons. Watford are unlikely to be as charitable as [...]

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Emirates Stadium Date: Sunday, 24 January Kick-off: 16:00 GMT Guus Hiddink inflicted Arsenal’s heaviest ever Premier League defeat at the Emirates when we won 4-1 there in May 2009, but whilst we travel back across the capital today, Hiddink will know these are very different times. Arsenal won’t get a better opportunity to win [...]

CHELSEA v Everton: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 16 January Kick-off: 15:00 GMT This afternoon’s game sees us play host to Everton and like every other side that comes to Stamford Bridge these days, the Toffees will be coming for the win. Martinez might not have a good record against us here but his Everton side have only [...]

CHELSEA v Scunthorpe: FA Cup Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 10 January Kick-off: 14:00 GMT During his first stint in charge in 2009, Guus Hiddink led Chelsea to FA Cup glory in a 2-1 win over Everton. Having blown even a European place this season, he’s hoping for domestic silverware at least, so we can expect the current interim manager [...]

Crystal Palace v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Selhurst Park Date: Sunday, 3 January Kick-off: 13:30 GMT Our first game of the new year sees us take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the early kick-off. Last time out against Manchester United was absolute torture to watch and in all honesty United could, and probably should, have been out of sight [...]

Man United v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Old Trafford Date: Monday, 28 December Kick-off: 17:30 GMT In view of our record away at Old Trafford, this fixture wouldn’t usually bother Chelsea as much as most teams. Ahead of today, we’re unbeaten in our last eight against them in the league and cup. That’s not a statistic United will want to hear [...]

CHELSEA v Watford: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 26 December Kick-off: 15:00 GMT Our last game, against Sunderland, was probably the worst we’ll have to sit through this season – and god knows we’ve had to sit through enough dross. Obviously, we will always want to win – the point was, we wanted the same level of commitment [...]

CHELSEA v Sunderland: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 19 December Kick-off: 15:00 GMT So much to say yet so little motivation to say it as we go into what should have been a straight forward game for us at home to Sunderland. We’re Premier League champions, Sunderland are sitting in the relegation places and this fixture last season [...]

Chelsea’s Precious One’s Calling the Shots

My relationship with Chelsea Football Club is a love-hate one. Actually that’s not true, of course it’s not, but at times it’s a love-wind me up to the point I could headbutt a wall one. It’s a roller coaster of emotions I kid myself I want to get off sometimes but the reality is that’s [...]
